City-owned Helsinki Partners, a city marketing, investment and talent attraction company, opened the application windows for its 90 Day Finn and Venture Nordics programs.

Both programs offer access to Helsinki’s ecosystem, ranked as the best business environment in the world and one of the fastest-growing VC investment ecosystems in Europe.  

90 Day Finn

The 90 Day Finn Program gives 15 business professionals the chance to spend up to 90 days living and working like a Finn. From business visits to networking opportunities and family-friendly leisure events, the 90 Day Finn Program is designed to support business development and offer unique access to the Nordics. Since its launch in 2019, the program has continuously evolved and improved to attract over 6000 applicants and 40 influential alumni members.

Applications for 90 Day Finn are open until the 29th of February, 2024 here.

Helsinki Partners will hone its ideal candidate to C-suite executives, corporate decision-makers and influential industry leaders looking to set up operations in Europe. Participants will join the program in Helsinki, Finland, from August to November 2024.  There’s also a new option to shorten the experience to 30 days instead of 90 days.

Venture Nordics

Venture Nordics is a new program for international fund managers and Limited Partners (LPs) looking to expand business to Europe or invest in Nordic funds in Finland. The program is built on the same foundational framework as 90 Day Finn but with more focus on investment and operational strategies in Finland.  

The program offers a 9-day immersive journey into Finland’s venture ecosystem. It aims to support international investors with exclusive access to uncover European investment gems. Four to 10 participants will get the chance to network with Finland’s top venture capitalists (VCs), Limited Partners (LPs), startups and other key ecosystem players across burgeoning sectors like gaming, software, greentech and medtech. 

Applications for the Venture Nordics program are open here until the 18th of February, 2024. Up to 10 participants will be selected to join the program in Helsinki, Finland, from the 30th of May to the 7th of June 2024.
